Before J.Lo, before Gloria Estefan Lisa Lisa was the Latina Princess who crossed over on pop  charts around the world. As a trio, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam – Lisa Velez, Mike Hughes and Alex “Spanador” – exploded on the scene in the mid-80s with hit songs like “I Wonder If I Take You Home” and “All Cried Out," almost singled-handedly inventing a popular Latin Hip Hop/freestyle genre.  But after their initial rocket ride to fame, the group fell apart, as Lisa struggled with personal issues including a serious illness, a failed marriage and financial troubles.  Through it all, their sound has endured, as their songs have been covered by artists from Mariah Carey’s group Allure to The Black Eyed Peas – while all three Cult Jam members continue to make their mark in popular music.  In this revealing episode, Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam tell the story of true survivors.
